SKIN CARE

I have scars. They used to really bother me: chicken pox twice- so the second time I had horrible scarring. I have minor scars from childhood injuries… The bigger ones came next from my car accident; physical, emotional and spiritual… and when I was in my twenties I was bitten on the lip by a pit bull. I am not the expert in essential oil uses but I think I have a few good ideas.

BASIL Tone and Circulation… Makes skin rosy

CEDARWOOD Hair and Scalp… A great aftershave

Imagination

I wasn’t awake
Be my imagination
I found you at Thunder Lake
it surprised me
you woke me
This day is forever,

The wind simply chills
I put on my scarf
There are constant breezes
my map is young
The temperature drops and water freezes.

I wrote about the trees
they stood there and talked for years
the garden surrendered
my dog and I ran from bees,
What we left was courage,
impossible to give up our guide.

The average American is getting less than 11 grams of fiber daily. Women should be getting 25 grams and men should be getting 35 grams of fiber. Our bodies also need probiotics. Yogurt, Kefir and sour cream all provide probiotics. Avoid unbalanced foods like white sugar, white flour and pop. Processed meats, GMO’s and MSG’s are not good.

Earth Day Celebration Activities

Avoid Fumes

Add Purification to paint (VOC-free)

Organize your Sweaters

Because of their weaves and bulk, sweaters can provide an ideal place for breeding insects. Use Purification on them instead of dry-cleaning.

*Purification and other essential oils also freshen laundered bedding, towels – even clothes with a delicate fragrance.

Sweet Dreams

Use an organic cotton case and fill it with flax seeds. Drop in Lavender essential oil for an all-natural eye pillow.

Compost Smells

Peppermint Oil! Use your leftover pieces of veggies and dried leaves. Alternate wet and dry for a great fertilizer on your herb garden.

Laundry Detergent

Thieves Cleaner. Harsh chemicals are really a problem for people with asthma. All those chemicals go into our earth’s water supply.

*Thieves toothpaste is also a wonderful product.
